Assisted living has emerged as an important housing and long-term care option for older Americans. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) are non-medical, residential settings that provide housing, food services, personal services, and watchful oversight of older adults and other persons with physical and mental disabilities. The purpose of this project was to develop a business plan for the creation of Norm and Edna’s Place, an assisted living facility for adults 65 years of age and older in Riverside County, California. The facility will have a whole person service approach focusing on the mental, physical, and spiritual balance of its residents. This project presented results of research on the quality of life (QOL) of residents of ALFs by looking at the impact of environment on resident’s happiness and mood. The business plan included a marketing plan and operational plan as well as an assessment of expenses and capital financing.
